Product Description

Review

“A wide-ranging and insightful addition to the literature of travel.”

(Colin Thubron, author of To a Mountain in Tibet)

“An important book which uncovers the history of travel writing before we learned to call it travel writing.”—Condé Nast Traveller

(Condé Nast Traveller)

This is a book which every serious reader of travel books will find absorbing; It is probably the most thoughtful study of the subject since Paul Fussell's Abroad in 1980.
(Times Literary Supplement 2012-07-04)
